Despite threats from Donald Trump, Republicans won’t vote on a bill to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“I don’t see any need to bring up legislation to protect someone who appears to need no protection,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
“I don’t think there’s a need for legislation right now to protect Mueller,” said Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
“I received assurances that his firing is not even under consideration,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI).
He certainly believes he has the power to [fire Mueller],” said Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
“Why don’t I just fire Mueller? We’ll see what happens,” Trump said.
Call your senator. Ask them to support a Mueller protection bill.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is moving forward with the investigation into possible coordination between Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election, while Congress’ investigations vary in their direction and effectiveness.
